the economy to energy policy, to national security. it astounding. i remember paul krugman earlier this year described mitt romney has being almost pathological in his approach to the truth. i think on average, all thgs beg equal, that's noan unreasonable thing to say. >> can romney make president obama look like a liar? >> it's going to be very difficult. i think it's fair to say that the president has been tough on mitt rney of late. he's running series of very aggressive ads. you mentioned earlier in the show about the 47% ad in particular. but all those ads stand up really well to scrutiny. there's nothing in any of the president's ads that has been plainly untrue. i think all candidates and all politicians are going to try and put their own spin othe facts, but the presidt has been the campaign.gho i don't think mitt romney can say the thing. >> it's going to be interesting. that's one of the dynamics of the first debate, how aggressive president obama will be in calling out mitt romney on how inaccurate. we'll call it inaccurate or maybe even, he'll use the word odhave you with us.sosi
